Volunteers’ Week Group Meetings

Community CVS is arranging regular partnership meetings to plan Volunteers’ Week 2020. Volunteers’ Week runs every year on the 1st to 7th June and it is a time to say thank you for the fantastic contribution volunteers make and recruit new volunteers.

We have 15 partner organisations involved so far and if you haven’t been involved up to now but would like to come along to hear the plans or join a task group you will be warmly welcomed. We would particularly like to have more volunteers involved in the group if you have volunteers that would be interested in planning.

Meeting dates are as follows: –

► Tuesday 3rd March, 10-11am, Boulevard Centre Conference Room
► Tuesday 7th April, 10-11am, Boulevard Centre Conference Room
► Tuesday 5th May, 10-11am, Boulevard Centre Conference Room

Please contact Kate Lee on if you would like to join us at the meetings so that she can add you to the group and send calendar invites/venue updates.
